Monday -April 28, 2008

As predicted yesterday, today was much cooler than we have been used to but I think we had better suck it up and get used to it. I did wear capris and a T-shirt with blouse over top all day and was comfortable but it has really cooled off in the last couple of hours.

This morning we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast, we can’t remember the last time we had breakfast there and quite enjoyed it. After that we hit Wal Mart and Kroger’s to finish up our shopping, I really like Kroger’s yogurt so managed to stock up a bit as it was on for 10 for $4. When we got back I did laundry, now we will be good until we get back to Kincardine.

Once I finished the laundry John decided to get us hooked up in case it is raining in the morning and wouldn’t you know it, it started to rain while he was hooking up. Fortunately, it was just a few drops so not too bad and he is insisting on barbecuing tonight so I do hope it doesn’t rain while he is doing that. The cold will be bad enough!

It seems funny to have to use the furnace and heater again and the electric blanket has certainly felt good the last couple of nights.

I just got on the internet to post yesterday’s diary and pictures so here’s hoping it is still working so I can get this posted.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.

Sunday -April 27, 2008

We are into cooler weather now, I think this will be the last day for shorts and T-shirts for a while! It did get up to about 18C on the truck today but pretty well stuck around 16C, we had sun until early this afternoon but after that it was mostly overcast. The trees here are just coming into bloom with a lot of them still having bare branches; but there is a profusion of dandelions.

Our Spot at Cave City KY

This Is an Amusement Area at Cave City

Today was the big cities day, Louisville was quite quiet and Indianapolis the same so we didn’t mind going through them, we have found that it is easier to do the big cities on Saturday or Sunday when there isn’t much traffic rather than a week day. Fort Wayne didn’t have a lot of traffic but there was construction – there has been construction there for at least three years now so what else is new!!

We are in Auburn, IN and will be here for two nights as there is a bit of shopping we want to do tomorrow then we will head out on Tuesday. I don’t know how we are going to make out with the wifi as the lady said she is having trouble with it so we will have to wait and see. Today is the closure of our loop – we stayed here our first night out – Nov. 14/07 and are back today having traveled a total of 16,080 km in that time.

I am doing this early so that hopefully I can get it posted. We are now on EST so it is nice not to have to worry about time differences when calling home, the first time since November.

I guess I had better think about dinner, probably burgers on the barbecue, that is easy and hopefully John won’t freeze cooking them!! And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.

NOTE: I couldn't get on the internet last night so had to wait until Monday to post this.
